According to an article this afternoon by Teri Buhl, the “smart money” is turning bearish on Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC). On Thursday, spiked volume and block buys had hedge funds scurrying. Sources have been claiming that Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) is behind the bearish bets. Her article also suggests that short-sellers like Jim Chanos’ Kynikos Associates and David Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital may also be involved. Notably, Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway is WFC’s largest holder with over 300,000,000 shares.
